The film is said to be a touching dramatic comedy about a basketball team made up of people with disabilities.
The said film is the official remake of the Spanish film Campeones.

The film was the biggest national box office hit of the year.
The Hindi remake will be set in Punjab with Aamir playing the role of a stubborn and hot-headed minor league basketball coach who is sentenced to community service and forced to coach a Special Olympics team, whose players have a range of learning disabilities. Aamir will focus on the project after the release of Laal Singh Chaddha. Meanwhile, Anushka will start shooting for the film after completing the shoot of Chakda Xpress.
